Cuba is a country transitioning from strict communism to a more relaxed form of it. At the same time, sexual minorities in this macho-inclined country are becoming more visible and less despised. I met Amanda and Nomi at the Las Vegas Club in Havana. I was moved and very grateful to them for their generosity for showing me their lives, without embarrassment or resentment for the difficulties they encounter. Instead, through sharing their time with me Amanda and Nomi offered me their Havana, and their community.
